Watching Over The River

photograph of a great blue heron watching the Rivanna River by Doug Couvillion

A Great Blue Heron was flying up the Rivanna River as friends and I were floating the down it.  

When it spotted us the heron landed high in a tree top and watched us from there.  I expected it to fly away; heron’s don’t normally hang around when people are near.   We must have been floating past one of its preferred fishing spots because it remained in the tree top until we were out of sight.
